Music Café at The Monastery

We’re happy to announce that our Music café relaunched on 18 May! It was wonderful to see so many new faces as well as welcoming back our friends from before.

Join family carers and people living with dementia to make music and have fun together, meet new friends and learn how music can help you reconnect to your loved ones.

When: Every Wednesday from 10.30am-12.30pm (please arrive from 10am)

Where: The Monastery, Gorton.

Cost: Free of charge for people living with dementia and their carers/families

Book: if it’s just two of you, just turn up on the day!

Large groups: if you’re a group of 3+ people: please email Helena in advance to reserve places:

Refreshments will be provided, it’s fully accessible and there’s lots of free parking too.

Generously funded with thanks to The McLay Dementia Trust.

See below for all the great press our Music Café received last time around!

Guardian reporter Helen Pidd wrote on her own Twitter account that the Music Café ‘…was the most moving thing I’ve had the privilege of reporting on in quite a few years. Bravo to Manchester Camerata’. Read the full article here.

This article follows press from both ITV and BBC News. Ann O’Connor from ITV described the Café as ‘Simple, effective and often magical‘, and the BBC put a lovely segment together which you can check here!
